Are you familiar with what all of your dashboard warning lights mean and how to respond to each one of them? Regular car maintenance is imperative to keep your automobile running, as well as to keep you and your passengers safe. The hope is that you’ll always have time to take your vehicle to an auto specialist if a problem arises. However, sometimes you need to respond to your car’s warnings right away. Knowing the following three important dashboard lights and what to do when you see them will keep you and your car safe.
1. Engine Light
If you see a dashboard warning light shaped like a car engine, it’s important to take action right away. Don’t assume this warning will just go away. It means that there is a problem with your car’s engine. Often, this warning is accompanied by a loss of driving power. Take your car to an auto technician as quickly as possible.
2. Oil Change Light
This dashboard warning light is often shaped like an oil can. When you see it, it means that you have likely missed an oil change. When your car goes too long without changing the oil, it can be very problematic. It might even cause irreversible damage to your vehicle. Take your car to an auto shop right away.
3. Brake Light
Obviously, you don’t want anything to be wrong with your brake system. Brake light warnings are usually depicted as an exclamation mark inside a circle. This one isn’t as easy to understand as the engine and oil change warnings. But it is imperative that you have a specialist examine it as soon as possible.
